I know I’m not the only writer who’s wondered what it must feel like to be Carrie Bradshaw and own $40,000 worth of designer shoes. And from April 24 through May 3 we’re in with a shot at a taste of it. Memorabilia auction site Gotta Have Rock and Roll will host a celebrity shoe auction with proceeds going to benefit New York’s LaGuardia High School and several pairs of autographed shoes worn by Sarah Jessica Parker on the set of Sex and the City are on the block.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker has revealed a sneak peek at her upcoming footwear collection, due to hit Nordstrom later this month. As featured in the February issue of Lucky, the Diana is a black patent Mary Jane single-sole stiletto with an assymetrical strap and simple gold buckle. As everyone from Racked to Huffington Post has pointed out, the pump bears a striking resemblance to a Manolo Blahnik style lusted over by the shoe-obsessed Carrie Bradshaw, SJP’s most famous role, in the Urban Shoe Myth episode of HBO’s Sex and the City.
Actress and style icon Sarah Jessica Parker is hitting the road for the launch of her new line, SJP Collection, debuting this Friday exclusively at select Nordstrom stores and online at Nordstrom.com. Parker’s first stop on the promotional tour will be her hometown of New York, where Nordstrom will host a pop-up shop from Feb. 28-Mar. 2. After that the former “Sex and the City” star will head to Seattle for an appearance at the retailer’s national flagship on Mar. 5, followed by stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami and Dallas.
